How to navigate our webpages

We now use a system that divides content into what most guests, visitors, prospective students, or prospective agency partners might find helpful (this webpage and through the links at the top right of this page), and content which is more relevant to our current students, faculty, and exisiting agency partners ( may be found at Inside RPTA).

In an effort to best serve our students, faculty and staff please reach us in our virtual waiting room and office:

Staff will be available Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm.
